Keith Richards: Johnny wants me for Pirates 5
Nov 14, 2012, 17:01 GMT
Johnny Depp wants Keith Richards to star in another 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film.
The actor based his iconic character, Captain Jack Sparrow, on The Rolling Stones star and Keith made cameo appearances as Sparrow's father, Captain Teague, in 2007's 'At World's End' and 2011's 'On Stranger Tides'.
Now, Johnny wants Keith to put on his pirate outfit once again for the fifth movie.
Keith said: 'I spoke to Johnny a couple of weeks ago and he said, 'Are you up for another one?' I can leave it at that because I know no more. But I do have the costume.'
The 68-year-old musician is more often recognised by the younger generation for his role in the films than he is as a member of The Rolling Stones,
In a radio interview, he said: 'Some kids who don't know nothing about The Rolling Stones [say], 'It's Johnny Depp's dad! It's Captain Teague!' I was born for the part.'
Keith - who is celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones this year - feels love from his fans wherever he goes and he credits them for creating his rock star image and reputation.
He explained: 'The image thing is a weird thing. It's not that you go around ... Everybody out there creates the image for you, and this is your role and you become it. It's unbeatable. You can't fight it, hence the skulls and of course, getting busted a few times didn't help.
'I always felt I was given a licence to sort of ... Forget 007, that's nothing! Everybody sort of gave me a licence to be what they wanted to be, but the trick is to stay alive and do it. People want to be wicked things, you know?'
